Let’s Create a Virtual Museum!

Are you missing the Museum? Since we can’t walk through the Museum galleries, let’s create our own virtual weekly exhibit using a piece from the permanent collection.

Here’s how it works:

  • Every Monday, starting today, we will post a new artwork featuring a specific animal from our collection on Facebook and Instagram.
  • You then paint, draw, sculpt, photograph, create anything that features that animal. Get creative!
  • Share your work using the hashtag #WildlifeartJH or tag us, @WildlifeartJH
  • We will share your work on our social media, creating a new exhibition every week!

Current Exhibits:

April 6: Bison
April 13: Big Cats
April 20: Birds
April 27: Bears
May 4: Fish
May 11: Wolves

In addition to Facebook albums, each week’s theme can be viewed on the story highlights on Instagram.

Join in on the fun!

What People Are Saying

Amazing architecture and building design provide a wonderful setting for this world-class Museum of wildlife art. Excellent and informed staff… Options for entry… Headsets available… An excellent café on site. I could spend an hour in the gift shop alone… Looking at the one of a kind, artistic, creative and beautiful offerings.
